I went to The English Rose with my friends because we haven’t seen each other for over a year! This was the cutest place ever and we had an amazing time.
They have a menu where you can choose the $12, $18 or $23 one (each just different sandwich/pastry options) and they all come with bottomless tea. I loved how they sold their tea by the pot so you can try as many as you want. We started out with two teas to taste, and ended up finishing up 4 pots of tea. And their tea selection is huge! Not only do they have the ones on the menu, but they have more seasonal teas to choose from and they have it listed on the table. We tried The English Rose Blend (which was okay), the White Tea (the Darjeeling one that was on their seasonal list), Apple Spice and Indian Chai (both were a huge hit between my friends). My friends don’t drink tea as regularly as I do and they really enjoyed their visit!
The atmosphere was so quaint and dainty with mismatched furniture and mismatched tea cups/saucers/pots. And the bathroom was also really cute! Everyone was so nice and you got a little chocolate kiss and a squirt of hand lotion with your check :)

Usual tea shopping place for me. I always stop by a couple times a year to restock on my Honeydew Rooibos :)

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai


Disneyland. Literally.
